Untrusted Certificates

    Question

  • I have been trying to learn a bit about security recently and in investigating my certmgr.msc, I noticed an untrusted certificate in the Personal/Registry/Certificates path.

    It is issued to JimmyGilles-PC\Jimmy Gilles with an Intended Purpose of <all>

    I do not know anyone called Jimmy Gilles.

    It did expire in 2011.

    Is this certificate a threat to my system?

    Thanks
